Flexipump: An irrigation pump designed for the developing world


PROMOTIONAL FEATURE | 8 FEBRUARY 2016

The Flexipump is an incredibly simple water pump designed primarily for small scale farmers to better irrigate their crops. It is manually operated, so the running costs are zero, perfect for rural areas and only weighs 2.5kgs.

We have designed the Flexipump to look like a bicycle tyre pump, this is because most people across Southern Africa know how to maintain and repair a bicycle pump. Also no tools are required to maintain the pump, everything can be taken apart by hand. Farmers can even make their own replacement piston seals (in exactly the same way as a tyre pump), though we do sell spares.

The pump can draw water from 6m below itself and pump a further 10m in the air or up to 300m along the ground. With continuous pumping, up to 1,600 litres per hour can be moved.

Compared to using buckets to draw water from a nearby well or stream, farmers can easily save 80% of their daily time taken to irrigate. The pump has a life span of 3-5 years.

So far we have seen the most sales within the tobacco industry, whether directly to tobacco growing companies or selling to individual farmers on the sales floors in Zimbabwe and Malawi.
